Problem linking program using glide

Post by Jonas Wol » Sun, 07 Nov 1999 04:00:00

Hi out there,

i wrote a little test program to get used to glide:

// glidetest.cpp
#include <glide/glide.h>
#include <stdio.h>

int main( )
  char ver[80];

  grGlideInit( );
  grGlideGetVersion( ver );

  return 0;


but when i try to compile and link it using
gcc -I /usr/include/glide glidetest.cpp
i get the following error messages:
/tmp/cc0mxVc0.o: In function `main':
/tmp/cc0mxVc0.o(.text+0x7): undefined reference to `grGlideInit'
/tmp/cc0mxVc0.o(.text+0x10): undefined reference to `grGlideGerVersion'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

i know, i need a library. i just have a file.
then i just compiled my test program using
gcc -c -I /usr/include/glide/ glidetest.cpp
and then link it with
ld glidetest.o /usr/lib/ -Bdynamic -defsym _start=main
i get no error messages any more but when i try to execute the a.out
i get the message "no such file or directory".
what do i do wrong? please help!



1. 3dfx glide support via linux glide port(s)

ok, i needed (well, wanted) glide support for my 3dfx banshee (creative
labs), so i installed the linux_glide port and it's dependencies.
However, when i execute test-glide, it does not work (installation went
fine, no errors.)  any help would be appreciated

# ./test-glide
Clear screen to blue
Resolution: 640x480
Press A Key To Begin Test.  *a-key*
_GlideInitEnviroment: glide2x.dll expected Voodoo Graphics, none

this was done and duplicated multiple times under freebsd 3.2 (upgrade
to 3-stable via port) and X windows 3.3.5, KDE WM
